You do realize that you do not need to "move" your e-mail service anywhere else to use Outlook 2010 to access it, I hope.
As JustXMeg has noted you can access Gmail and virtually any e-mail service in Outlook 2010 via IMAP on multiple devices. Unless you are somehow unhappy with the service you're getting from Google "behind the scenes" you're making a lot of extra work for yourself. POP continues to be supported mostly for backward compatibility reasons. I generally steer my clients away from POP because virtually all of them want to access the same e-mail account from multiple devices and doing so via POP is a sure road to madness as your messages generally don't all show up on all devices because of the way POP is generally configured by default. By contrast, IMAP was designed with the idea that one would be accessing a single account from multiple devices and keeps everything "in sync" with what the user sees.
I can confirm that Outlook 2010 (Office 2010 in general) is still actively supported. I've not upgraded because I don't need or want the latest "bells and whistles" that have been added to Office.

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.
